Having lived in NY for about 8 years I have amassed an insane amount of friends. I have friends through improv (mostly) friends through family, friends through boyfriends (ex), friends from high school (wait... I need to stop for a second. "Papa Can You Hear Me" just came on my iTunes.
Papa, how I miss you... kissing me... good night...)
Oh my god that song. So fantastic.
It reminds me of being in high school and doing that song as an a capella trio with my two friends Brittany and Amber in the talent show. This was talent, people. Talent and a need to be ridiculed by our peers.
Also, if you've never seen Barbara Streisand in "Funny Girl" she is just AMAZING. I had seen it but never on the big screen so I went to a screen a while ago at this theatre in Chelsea and I just about cried. So much talent! Of course now she paints Oprah's microphones white... so there's that.
I'm not sitting here saying I'm the most popular girl in Manhattan (close 2nd to Lizzie Grubman) but I do know a lot of people. Which is why if I run into someone randomly on the street I haven't seen since high school I don't so much say "oh my god... HIYEEEE!!!" out of shock as out of slobbering drunkenness. I should mention this usually takes place at noon on a Tuesday.
Having so many people in your life makes for an amazing tapestry (tapestry? really?) of friends. I have friends for all seasons. Friends who like to go out and paint the town red, friends who like to sit at home and play Cranium, friends who lend me books, friends who burn me music, friends who sing me songs and friends who do almost all of the above.
I feel so insanely lucky. Especially because my entire life has been spent avoiding becoming close with people. Had I known what I was missing out on!!
What's better than ordering in food and watching Grey's Anatomy? Or having such a fun time with someone that a man from Australia thinks you're lovers? Or starting a dance party and committing to it 100% because you both love to dance so much? Or finding out what probing is at 2:00 in the morning and giggling like school girls. Or... or... I mean I could go on and and on.
If I could freeze my life right now and stay here forever I would.
A little update on the dream... I'm not really able to find anything online that interprets my dream. Which leads me to believe that I am indeed EFFED UP. I will talk to my therapist about it today and see what she says.
Have a great day! Tell your friends you love them!!
